Hailing from a rugged, mountaintop vineyard on Napa Valley’s easter slope, this impressively elegant wine is a new one for us, but we’ll be back for more. Black cherry and licorice flavors are framed in firm, lush tannins.

Wine Spectator

Well-built, with a core of steeped black currant and blackberry fruit that is dense and compact, showing flashes of sweet tobacco, licorice snap and loam throughout, hinting at evolution. Fruit saturates the finish but maintains energy for balance. Best from 2021 through 2030.
